Being led

Often I have not known where I was going until I was already there. I have had my share of desires and goals, but my life has come to me or I have gone to it mainly by way of mistakes and surprises. Often I have received better than I have deserved. Often my fairest hopes have rested on bad mistakes. I am an ignorant pilgrim, crossing a dark valley. And yet for a long time, looking back, I have been unable to shake off the feeling that I have been led — make of that what you will.

    1. Thanks so much Vicki, not just for this comment but your your faithful presence. I really appreciate your reblog and your kind words there. Like you I am into shorter words now, and try to post just one idea, with minimal commentary. However, I must say, If I could ever get a blog idea as good as your photos I would probably retire… Karl
